I have a deep, abiding faith that there is a God. But as Al Franken is now just two votes away from stealing a US Senate seat, atheists could make a pretty strong case with me right about now.
On Election Night, Coleman was over 700 votes ahead. Then, suddenly, ballots started appearing from out of nowhere, and – surprise! – Franken gained over 500 votes. One jurisdiction came up with 100 ballots, all for Franken. The miraculous number of “corrections” and “updates” in Franken’s favor is greater than all other ballot corrections in the state for all other Minnesota races combined.
Consider the case of the precinct in Minneapolis where one packet of 133 votes was fed through the machine twice on election night. When the recount demonstrated that those votes didn’t exist in the physical world, Franken succeeded in getting the election night tally included in the recount, netting him 46 votes. Fine, Al. Does Coleman get to choose a precinct where the original count trumps the recount, too? No. The vote-stealing ratchet only goes one way.
Today, after reviewing a number of challenges, Coleman’s lead has dwindled to two votes. Two votes. And Franken has succeeded in opening a can of worms by getting the state to consider a bunch of “improperly” rejected absentee ballots, most of which will likely come from Franken-friendly jurisdictions. Two votes ain’t gonna cut it.
Guys, this is voter fraud. Blatant voter fraud. And nobody seems to care. And the most venomous, nasty human being to run for federal office in my lifetime is soon going to be a U.S. Senator as a result of this crap .
Merry freakin‘ Christmas.
